I have always loved the Imperial's. Chris already told me he did not want a wagon. I will look around at the Imperials again.. You are not interested in selling are you? Hey do you really have all those different year Airstreams? Which is your favorite? Tell me the 59, (even if you have to lie)
I will check out the sites your recommended. I have already been on the Vintage trailer supply site and we bought hub caps, now we need the correct wheels.
Thanks again for all your input. I will try and post some pictures soon.
The holidays are kinda of crazy.

I wish I could talk Will into parting with the Imperial....we really do have all of the trailers listed and around 40 Studebakers, about a half-dozen other vintage cars, two Scotty trailers, two -Sytem trailers, and a Spartan (in a pear tree). At least I know where he is on Friday nights!

Our '59 Globetrotter really is our favorite trailer out of all of them. It's been the "easiest" to get going and maintain, it's easy to tow, it doesn't take too long to polish, and it's just one of those cute little trailers that makes everyone smile.

Vintage Trailer Supply has been a great resource. I'm wondering if they might have any ideas/leads on wheels?

Will is approaching hero status with the guys. Wow, studes up the ying yang, a swack of others, a gaggle of trailers - I am SO jealous. Oh, and thanks for sharing this info, I've printed it and will use it to assist with my discussions with Donna whenever I see another car/trailer/boat/tractor/whatever up for sale.

Merry Christmas.

Barry

Glad to help you out, Barry. Guys - I cannot predict whether your wives will have empathy with me and say, "OK, as long as you don't get as bad as that nut Will," or, "I don't care how many cars and trailers Will has. You CANNOT get another one!"

Stude Heaven.
I love Stude's... I am totally jealous. I love the hawks.
We may look into one to pull our little "Wellshly" (the name of our globtrotter)

Welcome Will and congratulations on your '59. That is the best year of manufacture in my opinion. I, too, would love to see some pictures when you get a chance. What 'flavor' of wood is your interior and how's the appliances? The Four Corners Unit is having a New Year's rally at Picacho Peak about half way between Phoenix and Tucson you'ld be welcome to attend. Check us out.

Hello Mr. and Mrs. Cannon. Remember, your not camping when your traveling in your Airstream, your streamin'. I live in Crestview, FL and belong to WBCCI unit 29 in Pensacola, FL. Like some other units, ours owns its own campground. There are Airstream parks all around the country you can stay at while your traveling. You can check out the website of ours, Mystic Springs, if you like, it's index We used to live in L.A., would like to come out to CA again, but will have to wait until I can afford to take a few weeks off even though it's it's just on the other end of I-10!

Hi:
If I ever have time I will post pictures of our little "Welshly" as we call it.
We are trying to get it ready for the Notreallyrally in San Cemente CA.
Are you attending? OUr wood is a lite maple color and has some damage on the bottom by the floor, almost like it was in water . We are trying to work with the original, but it is pretty bad in spots.
Hope your New Year's rally was fun.
Maybe next year we can attend.
KC

You will find at the rally or any gathering of 'streamers that there are a lot of folks who can provide advice on repairing issues you have found. Many times there are tricks that have been learned either directly or from others that can cut time, costs, and frustration down noticeably. I have learned a lot of shortcuts here that had I known about prior to tearing into my own vintage trailer I'd of shaved a lot of time off my build out.

Have you found that elusive TV (tow vehicle) yet? It is sure a treat to tow one's Airstream with a vintage vehicle as a large number of folks on this forum do.

Hope to see you out in some campground some time........

Barry

Thanks Barry.
We are at a stall right now with some of the restorations, but still moving ahead. We want a vintage TV (tow vehicle) as you suggest, but are still looking. I like wagons, Chris is not sold on that yet. We are always looking for a deal if you hear of one. We are attending the Rally at San Clemente in Feb. Are you planning a visit?
Thanks again.
KC

You are invited - Women's Western Region Rally

Hi Kim -

Thought I'd jump in here with a welcome and a congratulations on your new airstream. She sounds like a beauty.

I also wanted to invite you to the women's rally in March at Lake Casitas campgroun in Ojai. It's our second annual gathering - a real hoot. Here's the thread to check it out.

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f288...lly-37982.html

Oh, and I love that you and your husband have old cars too. We love our '67 Airstream and our '68 T-bird. Maybe someday we'll be able to tow our 'stream with the Bird!

Cheers,

Hi Meredith:
Thanks for the invite, but I don't think I will be towing the "Welshly" solo any time soon. I can't ride a bike without running into somthing.
We love old cars, I use to have a 1955 T-bird before Chris and I married.
Now we have a 67 Vet (well it is Chris's baby) The next classic is my choice.
I thave a cute picture of our vet hooked up to the Airstream, it was our Christmas card this year. But the vet rides too low to tow anything. So we are still looking for our vintage tow car.
Will you be attending the San Clemente rally?
Thanks for the welcome.
KC
